Words that won the war

"Words That Won the War" was the story about the Committee on Public Information, headed by George Creel, formed in 1916 to influence U.S. public opinion in favor of entering World War I. Creel wrote about the Committee's rejection of the word "propaganda," saying: "We did not call it propaganda, for that word, in German hands, had come to be associated with deceit and corruption. Our effort was educational and informative throughout, for we had such confidence in our case as to feel that no other argument was needed than the simple, straightforward presentation of facts."
